The Perfect Combination – Engine + Drivetrain

Jun 5

Today I was looking at the 2009 A3 and thought to myself how nice the combination of 2.0T and the Quatto All Wheel Drive is. Last year the 2.0T was not available with the Quattro drivetrain in North America and you could only get the Quattro A3 with the 3.2L V6 and I thought, at the time, it was perfect. Now that Audi is discontinuing the 3.2L V6 engine in the A3, A4, A5 and so on, I began to wonder, what is the greatest engine? What is the perfect combination of engine and drivetrain? At one time the Audi S4 was a BI Turbo V6 and then Audi went to a 4.2L V8, both extremly fun cars, and now for 2010 we will be getting the 3.0L Supercharged V6, so what is best? I don’t have the answers, only opinions that seem to lead me to more questions. What I do know though, is that I like what I see in the Audi Brand. I like change, advancement and progression of efficency, power and control. However, the only thing for certain is that change is inevitable and if you are into Audi’s, it is best not to fall in love with any one engine drivetrain combination because you will most likley end up missing out on new advancements down the road. I have always said, “It is not the thing that changes that determines if we like it or need it, it is us.” What I mean by that is that if you have an open mind to change, simply ask yourself this question about the thing you are uncertian about: “does it work?” and more importantly “does it work for me?” I appoligize for going so deep on a subject that is seemingly so simple and that has such a huge amount of personal preference to it, but people ask me, “why does Audi ……..?” and the question they should be asking is “does this change work for me?”

1. Performance

Every part in the machine counts.

With our vehicles being developed from the ground up around the world famous & award winning Quattro All-wheel drive, it is no wonder we are the leader in performance.

With countless victories and developments in Le Mans, Rally racing, Pikes Peak, and touring car championships, we build the most competitive All-wheel drive cars in the world. If you are looking for that unfair advantage, welcome to Audi, you have found it.

Available with technical advancements such as side guard head protection, Side Assist, adaptive headlights, three point safety belts and many other award winning safety systems as well as L.E.D lighting.

3. Design

Everyone wants to look good right?

Bold dynamic lines with moving surfaces, coupe like design and an aggressive stance on the road whether moving or standing still.

Audi has set itself apart from the rest of the industry with driver oriented cockpits and the leader of interior craftsmanship, materials and fit and finish. Keep in mind our extensive use of aluminum, space frame technology and low center of gravity give you that true Audi experience inside and out.

4. Versatility

Sometimes abundance is not enough.

If you want it, Audi has it. And if you have heard of it, it is most likely an option. Audi builds the most versatile cars in the world. Four door sedan or sport back, Coupe or Sport utility vehicle, big or small, front wheel drive or Quattro, gas fuel or diesel - and you still have to pick a color.

5. Value

Yes, fair value exchange does exist.

you will gain piece of mind!

And really, you can't put a price on that.
